The BIN has received an obituary from Kelly O'Keefe, who responded via the BIN Blogger, regarding the lineage of Dr. James Briles. Dr. Briles' wife, Kathleen Steely Briles, was murdered on August 3, 2009 in Florida. We have checked the death notice and are confident in the lineage, which will be posted to the databases today. Dr. Briles is the son of the late Iowa Senator, James Edward and Marilyn Lorene Tendall Briles. We appreciate Kelly for the death notice. The murder case is still under investigation. There are no suspects at this time.
